The Ever­green Prayer

Joyce Clif­ford

Evergreen - - Contents - JOYCE CLIF­FORD

I place my hands be­fore You, Upon the al­tar rail And ask You for Your guid­ance For hav­ing tried and failed. I walk into this lovely place As if it were my own And just ex­pect an an­swer To prob­lems that have grown. And I ex­pect there’ll be one In a dif­fer­ent kind of way, To help me over­come my fears And con­tinue day by day. Why is it when we’re wor­ried We come to church to pray And take so much for granted As we travel life’s long way? So as I kneel in humble prayer To­day I feel at peace Be­cause the love You share

with me I know will never cease.
